Josef Frank designed more than 160 prints for Svenskt Tenn, the majority of which contained imaginative botanical motifs. For Josef Frank, using nature’s colours and forms in interior design was a way to breathe and feel free in the enclosed space of a room. The Mirakel (Miracle) print probably got its name after Josef Frank’s comment: "It was a miracle that such a small repeat could be the source of something so grand". Mirakel is one of his earliest prints, designed back in the late 1920s.
Josef Frank’s textiles with the 315 linen designation are best suited for curtains, pillows and other textile products. They can also be used as upholstery fabric on furniture that is not exposed to excessive wear, such as in the home.
